When the weather gets warmer, long hair can start to feel like a heavy, sweat-inducing burden against your skin. A shorter, lightweight cut can be an instant refreshing solution to help you beat the heat.
As summer approaches, consider making a change by transforming your long locks into a polished shorter style. These ten short bob hairstyles are the perfect stylish cropped cuts to keep you cool all summer long.

This shoulder-length cut keeps you cool without taking away your option of a lazy-day ponytail. Its subtle lilac highlights add a pop of color to your locks without looking too over the top.
Curl your hair using a fat curling rod or a flat iron with wide plates. Tame and set this style with texturizing spray in lieu of traditional hairspray to achieve loose, relaxed waves instead of tightly-wound ringlets.
Curly Rose Gold Chin-Length Bob

Use a thin curling rod to style this bob. Wrap small sections of your hair loosely around the rod to get the perfect relaxed ringlet curls shown above.

Short Orange A-Line Bob with Asymmetrical Part
Make a statement with this ultra-short, bright orange bob cut. This bob’s A-line slant frames your facial features, while its asymmetrical side part adds interest and style. A fiery orange hue adds an extra touch of boldness to this style.
To style this bob, start with damp hair and draw a deep side part. Rough dry your hair and flat iron it straight. You can also skip the flat iron and use a blow dryer and round brush as your straightening tools instead. Finish with a shine spray to help the bright orange color of this bob gleam even brighter.
